Good preview. Well worth the read: http://www.gamesradar.com/us/xbox360/game/previews/article.jsp?articleId=200706129573775081&sectionId=1001&releaseId=2007022792642821021

Every sane person is wondering how all this is going to run on their system. We asked Cevat Yerli, Crytek CEO, what gamers with a limited budget
should buy to make sure they can play Crysis well, and his first answer was two gigs of RAM. The single gig most of us have is going to struggle
with environments of this size, and with this much smashable stuff to keep track of. Next on the shopping list is, predictably, a GeForce 8800 - but
the GTS model in that range is fairly affordable, and not a huge step down from the GTX. The surprising part is that Cevat says a Core 2 Duo E6600
processor is enough to run Crysis on Ultra High settings with that setup. That chip is likely to undergo another price drop before Crysis comes out,
too, so don’t rush.Yes, you can pick up, throw and even beat people with live chickens. You can pick up, throw and beat people with anything smaller than a car,
and in this we include wheelbarrows, spades, tree trunks, grown men and even most of a car. At one point in our playtest we shot a man’s
helmet off, caught it, beat him to the ground with it, shot him again and dropped it on his body. Anything smaller than a tree can be held in
your left hand while you fire with your right, even when you’re using an assault rifle or shotgun, so alternating between bonging people with a
spade and shooting them in the face is seamless.

In the article Cevat said that technology will not catch up to the game for a while. It may be similar to the way ultra mode was in Doom3 where no card could run it during release.

LMAO at the "beat a man with a live chicken" and "take turns beating a guy with a spade and shooting him in the face". THIS GAME IS GOING TO PWN!!!

Edit: I saw no mention of a need for the Aegia physX card for this game :) save me a couple hundred bucks.

When they first implemented this, Senior Game Designer Bernd Diemer discovered that he could grab a fallen tree and hold it in front of him to become completely invisible to the AI. This tactic is frowned upon in the real military as unsporting, so it had to be tactfully explained to the AI that a walking tree is deeply suspicious.
:rofl

Edit: Also,
Crytek is painfully aware that the indoor sections of Far Cry were banal and unworthy of the rest of the game, so you’re outdoors for almost the entirety of Crysis.
Excellent news. I was rather disappointed when the latter levels were increasingly indoors in Far Cry.

2 1/2 hours to get through level 3..... maybe we'll have a game that actually takes a while to get through?? Heck...if you take out all the cut scenes, Half Life 2 isn't much more than 2 1/2 hours all together lol.

Yes, Crytek uses a CPU based physics engine.

Whereas 'that setup' refers to 2gigs of ram and an 8800. :captnkill: Ultra-High settings? :D I seriously don't know how much longer I can wait for this game to come out, hopefulyl it's not too long.

When they say ultra-high, I am hoping they are talking of 1680x1050 and higher resolutions.

lol. They are still in pre-alpha. They have been there a loooong time too. I wouldn't expect a demo anytime soon.

Actually, at this rate. It wouldn't surprise me if this game doesn't come out till next year.

I still want to play it, but it's been soo long seeing pictures and videos it feels like I already have. And could care less when it actually comes out now :)

I was hyped, over a year ago hehe

Crysis actually has graphical features built in that no PC available this year will be able to make use of. Cevat estimates it’ll be 18 months after release before technology catches up with his game. They put these features in partly to keep Crysis current after release - they say it’ll be the best-looking game for the next three years - but also, let’s face it, because they’re enormous graphics geeks.

:afraid:
